A day late but out now...

I'm getting a message that a newer version of T-Racks is already installed on my machine. I'm assuming that's just an error and their Windows installer system thinks 5.10 is less than 5.9.

Any of the T-Racks plugins that existed when Total Studio Max 3.5 was released will be included. Any new additions wouldn't. That's typically IK's standard with the Max products.

That odd error is being fixed but also it should not cause any issues with using the update aside from the annoying error.

Yes, can confirm I had no other errors besides that.

For those interested in T-RackS The Farm Stone Room Studio Reverb (correctly stated above that it is not included with Total Studio 3.5 MAX), we also released this video about it:

What does this Farm Stone thing bring to the table which can not be done with Sunset and Fame things?
And can this be heard in a full mix over the usual wireless earphones everybody uses today?

It is another very specific room with specific properties and a signature sound. The video above should highlight its strengths and differences from those other classic rooms.

The "Phil Collins In The Air Tonight" drum room sound. Whether or not you need/want that is up to you. But that's why it exists. It even has the compressor built in.

I recently picked up FAME on sale and that's a more versatile product IMO. I do dig these virtual studio/room plugins. FAME sounds great on Pianoteq.

This room will be great to have.

Kudos to Squids (Dave Kerzner) for his input. :tu:

Looks like an interesting drum room. One trick pony?

Peter, where is the GATE in the Farm Stone Room?

Every SSL 4000 channel has a built-in gate. And, the gate naturally was one of the absolute key ingredients of that room’s sound and ‘80s gated reverb!


Here is Hugh Padgham on the Phil Collins drum sound:

Hugh Padgham wrote:The Solid State Logic console was quite new then and it had a compressor/noise gate on every single channel which before that had never happened...

The whole essence of the sound is the compression of it which makes it sound really fat and then the second that there is a lull in the sound the gate just shuts it off. The drums were in a very live room; when you compress a sound in a live room it brings up all the background noise and the echo in a room. Therefore, when you go from something sounding big to nothing, you get this feeling of massive contrast. That is the whole essence of why the sound was so interesting because it is going from all to nothing in milliseconds.

We had the compressors and noise gates in each channel so I said OK, let's put up some room mics, listen to the drums through those and compress them. That's what I did, but we hadn't discovered the noise gate side of it yet. When I pushed the button for the compressor on the console, there was a noise gate already in the chain. Phil stopped playing and the sound suddenly went to nothing [as the gate kicked in]. It was like, 'Oh my god, that's amazing’.

So..... where’s the SSL 4000 noise gate that makes the big Phil Collins drums happen on this plugin?
